the white paper twice, the unclassified report. i listened to speeches by dick cheney. by george bush. i saw the secretary of state come out before the security council of the united nations and say, this vial contains biological weapons from mobile biological labs in iraq. and i believed them and i believed the intelligence. and i voted to go to war in iraq. and the intelligence was wrong. >> her opponent in this race elizabeth. we have extended two invitations to her campaign for interviews but they say it didn't work out with her schedule. wanted to point that out. >> san francisco, all lit up in orange for giants fever. >> this is how the city shows its team pride during the world series. next our conversation with mayor ed lee. another high profile sports event he wants to bring to town. ,, event this year. >>> this week san francisco is all lit up and orange for the biggest baseball event of the year. >> and so we sat down with san francisco mayor ed lee and asked him, all right, the world series brought a lot of attention and money to the city. but how vile is this overall to san fran
is i've put out fewer regulations than george bush did. some were significant. obviously, dodd/frank, welfare -- wall street reform is a big example of that. but i have actually initiated a whole process to look back at all the old regulations to see, are there ones that don't work? that should be a project republicans are happy to work with me on. because if we're going to streamline government, we should do it smartly. i've said that i want to consolidate a whole bunch of government agencies. we should have one secretary of business instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like getting loans to sba or helping companies with exports. there should be a one-stop shop. now, the reason we haven't done that is not because of some big ideological difference. it has to do with congress talking a good game about wanting to streamline government but being very protective about not giving up their jurisdiction over various pieces of government. so there are going to be a whole bunch of things i think we can work on. the first thing, though, is let's go ahead an
, joy, this is purely partisan observation, w, president george w. bush, did not take this job seriously. not just going into iraq which was wrong. he created a federal agency and turned it into run by what was that guys name? michael brown. >> it was brown. >> brownie. >> alba was the other guy. michael brown, you're doing a great job brownie. a guy from the arabian horse ration association and put him on charge showing how much focus he had on this kind of disaster situation. >> he turned it into a patronage job and republicans like to claim democrats basically use government for patronage but george wumplt bush famously took almost federal agency as a place to park executives. when he put michael brown into fema it was a slap in the face to the notion that the federal government's job is to step in and help people with disasters. he thought anybody could do it. >> thank you, david corn, and thank you, joy. in all seriousness, this is a serious situation, but this brings up the serious decisions the voters have to make. i think we need a federal rogue. coming up, we will continue to tr
know, george w. bush asked president his flyover of katrina got people very, very angry. in many ways, it hurt the republican party in 2008 along with the war in iraq and the economic crisis of '08, it was sort of the third horseman of the woes that w brought on the country that he didn't seem to care enough during the time of the katrina disaster. >> jennifer: you wrote about this in the great deluge. you wrote after katrina the gulf south region and the united states as a whole needed compassion. what it got instead was the incompetence of george w. bush who acted as though he were disinterested in a natural disaster in which there was no enemy to be found. bush's slow responses to the great deluge made americans ask if he was a bunker commander in chief. and many people would argue that he never recovered from that. would you agree? >> i agree and i was in new orleans when katrina hit. and i was flabbergasted. i mean he went on from crawford, texas to san diego and gave a speech about the navy and about
the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he's lavished on the president and if he doesn't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of
debate. brad blakeman is former assistant to george bush and jehmu green is fox news contributor. thanks for joining us. brad, i'll begin with you. an october surprise that no one was counting on. how did the candidates deal with this moving forward. nine days out? >> they must show empathy to those people in harm's way. life and property on the line for these folks. from virginia to new york. wear talking about a storm that can reach as far west as chicago. this is battleground state of ohio is someplace it could have an effect. you have to walk a fine line between being political and also being empathetic to the plight of americans. you have seen that with the romney campaign. they have turned their headquarters in many states into relief centers. they stood down from fund-raising. candidates themselves are not making appearances in these states. i think at a time when a week to go before the election. it's very important that we put first things first, it trumps the national election because it will take care of itself a week from tuesday. let's hope that everything is okay. we'll get
in a presidential campaign >> think of george w. bush, and campaigning for mitt romney. it would be all over the place. what is this former president doing campaigning? lou: think about what difference in history is if eisenhower is campaigning for nixon in 1960. >> exactly, and we have seen that our former presidents, maybe with the exception of jimmy carter, who every once in awhile stick a needle into somebody's back, but basically even carter hasn't gone and the campaign trail in favor of aristocratic and it. lou: a lot of journalists trying to catch up with anne klein reporting on the machinations of clinton, the secretary and her legal team trying to match your reporting. her role, the president's -- the former president's role in taking responsibility for benghazi, then stepping back from it, leaving her in a heightened, elevated, if you will, memory, at least, those who follow politics, but taking effectively no responsibility. the president's stepping forward. what is going on here? >> and the president was asked today, i believe, about this benghazi think. he said, as i said to my
this seem reasonable this could happen? >> well, remember that it was the policy of the george w. bush administration to seek negotiations with iran in the second term and president bush and president obama have had a very, policies very close to each other. we, both administrations wanted to deny iran a nuclear weapon. both have been willing to negotiate with iran but iran hasn't been open to that. both administrations sanction iran and threatened the use of military force should that be necessary. i think that is the proper policy. so i think there is large-scale agreement in washington that that should be the construct. if president ama is reelected or if governor romney wins the eltion, i would think it does make sense for us to have negotiations with iran. we certainly have the time and space available to do that. negotiations don't mean at all that you give away the store. negotiations mean that you try to stop them from building a nuclear weapon but try to do it by peaceful diplomatic means with a threat of force behin you. if negotiations don't succeed you always have that opti
me now is howard dean and joe watkins, former white house aide under george w. bush. >> good to see you, alex. how are you? >> i'm well, thank you. >> governor dean, look at this first republican endorsement since 1972 from "the des moines register," after president obama wasn't able to meet with the editorial board in person. do you thiyou think that had an influence. i spoke with rick green, he said it didn't. >> petulence is a major factor in newsrooms. look, they endorsed john edwards in the '04 primary. endorsements don't matter very much in races like this. they matter in down ballot races where people don't know them very much, but i don't think anybody is waiting to decide in this incredibly close election to see what "the des moines register" does. people read editorials because they are written by smart people, but they are read by smart people as well. >> i spoke with anne cornblunt, and she brought up that the tribune in salt lake city endorsed president obama. that state is going red, we know that. but in the state of iowa, sir, a small percentage of people still undeci
to the policies of george w. bush. >> chris, it is pretty simple why governor romney s doing so much better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs and mitt romney has got a plan that is progrowth, projobs to turn this thing around and president obama doesn't. when people look at the last four years they are disappointed. they must be. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. there are 22 million americans struggling to find work. 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down 4300 bucks per family on average. we are headed in the wrong direction. president obama, your' right he has a glossy new you brochure. i looked at that brochure and i played this role of obama during debate prep and it is more of the same. you can argue that we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own when he surements. he said unemployment would be 50% lower today than it is if we just passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth would be two thirds higher than it actually is. it hants work
. first let's take you back to 2000. that year george w. bush won independents 47-45. and independents made up a little more than a quarter of the electorate that year. in 2004, john kerry essentially split them with president bush, 49-48 with the independent share still only one out of every four voters. by 2008, independents accounted for nearly a third, 29%, and they broke significantly for president obama. he beat john mccain among them 52-44%. but the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll finds romney leading nationally by six points. why is that important in virginia? according to the new "washington post" poll, 36% of virginia voters now say they are independent, more than democrats, more than republicans. that's the largest voting bloc. let's look at the 2008 map to see where the president did well and where he needs to overperform this time. if you look here, i'm going to circle our little blue counties here. i'm going to show you where the places here, and i switch over to the 2004, you'll see all this blue disappear in the areas that i just circled. and when you look, y
the republican party has blocked it over and over again. george bush put forward a bill that the republican party would not even consider. we of 11 million people live -- living in the shadows were working hard. we need to provide them a path to citizenship without putting a disadvantage to people of waited in line. for young people who were brought here as little children, we need to make sure their dreams and aspirations of a realistic chance of being rely so they can contribute in the communities again. >> one minute left. just a 42nd recap you like to leave the voters with. >> i been ranked as one of the most independent congressman in the united states. take a look at the chicago tribune. they have said dole is the clear choice. frankly i am able to bridge the political divide and reach across the aisle. i have done that for the past 22 months. it being on front on israel issues, being a leader. i am a social moderate. certainly my record stand up for that. -- stands up for that. we've seen this past two years of congress that has put fighting ahead of comprehensive collaboration. we need so
president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
. >>> none of this surprises me. hurricanes have a well-known liberal bias. first katrina tainted george bush's presidency. then isaac wiped out the first day of the republican national convention. now hurricane sandy. sandy, what kind of name is that? are you a dude storm or a lady storm? oh, big surprise. just when obama needs a boost, who shows up but a gender-ambiguous weather system, a category 5 bi-hurricane. hey, don't get me wrong. i don't mind you being a meteorological event, but why must you be so flamboyant and in my face about it? no. i'm hurricane sandy. deal with me. >> oh, my gosh. up next, bill karins calls it the storm of a lifetime. for many living along the east coast as millions are still trying to recover from hurricane sandy. this week's "time" cover tackles the impact of the storm along with special election coverage. rick stengel is next to reveal the new issue.

, the two bushes, bush 41 and bush 43 had disasters in their handling of hurricanes. george h.w. bush with andrew which damaged his political career, it was damaged. of course george w. bush in 2005 with katrina. many people in the bush white house cite that was the low point of his presidency. a lot of dangers also, a lot of political opportunities. >> let's get practical. early voting is happening in these states. maryland cancelled early voting for the day. how much of an impact is that especially for the obama campaign is very much -- >> they are dependent on it, talking about it, counting on it. it does have an impact. it moves romney into an awkward situation. anything he does looks blatantly political or needy he's not in the equation when the country is under siege from a massive storm. >> the president of the united states went to the fema command center which by the way was it cynical or maybe the people running the campaign said we need to get him there. the president was doing what presidents do. what does mitt romney do? >> real quickly this close to the election does it
reaches its apex, president george w. bush not out campaigning for mitt romney. but rather speaking at an investment conference in the cayman islands. organizers declined comment. tickets, $4,000 apiece. >> oh, my goodness. >> sir richard branson said to be there as well. >> there you go. "the charleston daily mail." west virginia still feeling impacts of sandy in the form of snow. in some counties, 80% of residents have no power. and in places three feet of snow cover the ground. this must be just unbelievable. forest crews and fema have been working around the clock with chain saws to carve up fallen trees but more are falling under wet, heavy snow. >> "the washington post," the ipad mini goes on sale. apple expects to sell 1 million this weekend. put that in perspective, apple sold 5 million units of the iphone 5 in september. almost two inches smaller than the full-size version, but 330 bucks more expensive than competitors' model. >> 200 in the first day just to halperin. >> halperin. he hoards apple products. he's a hoarder. >> you never know. >> mika, we should point out one
advisor to george w. bush. nice to see you long time. doing well. you're going to help us look at the electoral college and we hear it's about ohio can't make it to the white house without winning ohio. >> there are other ways, but in order to get to ohio first, you have to get to three and then two. the three states that you have to get to before you get to ohio are florida, north carolina, and-- are indiana, north carolina and virginia, three historically republican states that president obama won and then you've got to win florida, which has 29 electoral college votes, you get those four states, indiana nobody considers to be a battle ground, if romney gets the three states, florida, north carolina, virginia, then he's set up for, you know, going to ohio, those three states look pretty good. north carolina out of contention, florida looks pretty good. you know, florida four years ago, they had the ballot requests four years ago in florida, the democrats had a 7 point advantage, 45% of the absentee ballot requests, 37 for republicans-- 46-37. this time the republicans have a
of reaching out to both republican and democratic governors and mayors. george bush -- his administration provided some help to republican governors that democratic governors didn't get. new orleans wasn't included in the federal state of emergency. >> jennifer: and james do you think, first of all that the decision to halt the campaigns, for example, that is a no-brainer, right? >> yeah absolutely. and i think particularly in the case of obama talking to folks around him, it was clear to me this was not first and foremost a political decision on his part. he just said simply i'm not running out there and raising money and going to pep rallies at the same time that i'm supposed to be overseeing what could compare to katrina. >> jennifer: well, now romney -- you know, cheryl is talking about the president having reached out to governors of both sides. romney as far as we know only spoke to the republican governors, but he did cancel -- at least canceled some of his campaign appearances. how long does this last? >> well it might be a little bit of a cat and mouse ga
